Cozy restaurant near Mamilla Mall and hotels. We had basic Italian (antipasto, spaghetti, lasagna) that was excellent. Nice red and white wine selections. Nice place for a couple to celebrate a special occasion

Small 7 table place. Soups were very good although my minestrone was a bit salty. Shrimps dish was delicious, veal was good. Prices are more reasonable than the $$$-$$$$ on the rating. Decent wine list.

Not the first time I've been, though it was a few years ago, and I had pleasant memories. It's non kosher, mostly Italian and the ambience is very nice. I love French onion soup and love comparing them. This was middling. Two of us had...More

Our travel agent recommended this restaurant, it was a short walk from the David Citadel hotel. Cute little Italian restaurant, only a few tables, everything we ordered was excellent, service was great. Pastas and meats were delicious. Glad our travel agent sent us here!
